Most recent issue of October has article by Alum Arnaud Gerspacher

Kudos to alum Arnaud Gerspacher (Ph.D. 2017), who has a new article out in the journal October In Zoonotic Undemocracy (2022:181, 61-92),  Gerspacher "argues for the urgency of re-thinking politics from a posthumanist perspective, one that considers the impact of environmental harm caused by the uses of nonhuman animals."  He examines a film by Wilson Coutinho and the work of conceptual artist Cildo Meireles, the subject of Coutinho's film. Already in the 1970s, they addressed environmental issues  - global warming, biodiversity loss, racist food politics, and zoonotic illnesses. Gerspacher analyzes the role of nonhuman animals in the context of environmental politics in Brazil, and beyond.
